China is one of few countries in the world that have nuclear weapons. As the prospect of nuclear weapons being used has become a pertinent worry following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Express.co.uk takes a look into China’s nuclear arsenal.

What nuclear weapons does China have?

China has a range of nuclear weapons, even if it has a comparatively small arsenal – but exactly what they have is unknown.

Among these are the Dongfeng-5, a single warhead with a range of 13,000km.

China is estimated to have around 18 of these, but the last estimate was provided in 2000.
